Olivia Bailey is an assistant professor of philosophy at UC Berkeley. Broadly speaking, Bailey's work is concerned with the ways that different kinds of epistemic virtues enable, constitute, and (perhaps) interfere with ethical virtues. She is particularly interested in the significance of emotionally-charged imagination and understanding, and in the gap between intellectually comprehending and knowing something “in one’s heart." Bailey's work in these areas draws inspiration from the Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th century.
